DIY Back To School Sign

Our oldest daughter is off to Kindergarten this year. She has been waiting for this for a while, talked about it for weeks!!! We are thankful to know that she loves the idea of going to school. Our prayer that she will experience what God has stored for her this year at school and He’ll show her favor and love through her teacher. We pray also that she’ll learn to share and love her friends. This Mama is thankful, happy and worry at the same time. This is not only a journey for my daughter but also a journey for me and my husband to put trust in God to take care and protect her while she is away from us.

In the mean time… I get to spend time our second daughter at home, start teaching her one on one and having fun while her big sister at school. She misses her big sister A LOT!!!

To celebrate her first day going to school, I made her a sign… It was a big surprise for her at 7 on Wednesday morning! She cannot stop giggling and reading what’s written on the sign 🙂


I found a black foam display board at home and cut the shapes using my Silhouette Cameo. The cutting files I used are: the girl with backpack is from Patty Young Designs, the big titles “Off To Kindergarten” and stars are from PPbN Designs, and banner pennant is from Samantha Walker.

The alphabet for her name is from Basic Grey chipboard sticker. The butterfly on the girl’s hair, I punched it using Martha Stewart monarch butterfly punch. I also added some sequins on the stars 🙂

Then I made a scrapbook layout also for this special moment. I used Pixelily Designs new Collecting Moment August kit (available on Ginger Scraps and Gotta Pixel):


I pray for all of you, Moms! God is with your kids at school, fully protect and help them every single day at school.
